Ill Wind by Rachel Caine
Book 1 of the Weather Warden series

Genre: Urban Fantasy

About This Book:
First in the new Weather Warden series...

Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden. Usually, all it takes is a wave of her hand to tame the most violent weather. But now, she's trying to outrun another kind of storm: accusations of corruption and murder. So, she's resorting to the very human tactic of running for her life...

Her only hope is Lewis, the most powerful warden known. Unfortunately, he's stolen not one but three bottles of Djinn-making him the most wanted man on earth. Still, she's racing hard to find him-before the bad weather closes in fast...

My Review:
I bought the first three books of this series because it got so many stars at amazon, bad idea! The heroine, Jo, is painted as sassy, kick-ass and honorable, which is mostly true. However she acts so so incredibly stupid!! She lets go of hero, David who is a Djinn, so that he can be enslaved by the bad guys, Star, knowing full well that this was going to happen. Unbelievable! And then afterwards Jo races across America in fast cars to rescue David. Hello! Looks to me like Jo deliberately let bad things happen so that the good guys could play hero. This theme goes on and on and on with the second and third books. Safe to say I'm not reading anything from this author ever again. However, for those urban fantasy lovers who are more forgiving than me of this fault, might actually enjoy this series because the author actually has a good "voice". The story telling quality is compelling enough to keep even annoyed me interested.
